Everyone loves a list! Here’s a list of the aspects of my wedding that I’m most psyched about (in no particular order)!

1.My dress! it’s seafoam green, tea-length, from the 60’s, was originally intended to be a nightgown but makes a fantastic dress! (with a slip underneath of course)

2. Our invitations! I’m just so in love with them. The airballoon has long been a symbol for the boy and I, and I looove the luggage tag RSVPS. I showed the boy a boarding pass themed invite set that I liked and he made something even more wonderful. (I’ll add pics later)

3. Our non-isle oriented ceremony that culminates in my 6 year old sister/flower girl showering us in glitter/rose petals/whatever when we’re told we may kiss! How cute will that be!

4. Our thrift store teapot centerpieces at the reception, our favorite chai tea that will serve as the ‘cake’, and thrift store teacups for everyone that they’ll get to keep!

5.Our as of yet unwritten ceremony script and vows that I’m sure will turn out fabulously and be performed by our lesbian nongovernmental, nonreligious officiant

I’m sure there’s lots more exciting stuff to come…

it’s kind of crazy to think that I’ll be permanantely relocating to Glasgow as of September 2nd (tickets booked and paid for yeah!) and have actually only been overseas once when I visited the boy during Christmas last winter. I’ve been fascinated with Europe, it’s history and culture since I was a kid though and done my share of moving round the US, but somehow getting out of the country just never really fit into the plan.. till now! This has however given me lots of time to think about where I want to go and I certainly hope to make use of my new proximity to, well pretty much everything.

The boy and I are flying into Manchester to visit his family, will be staying in London for a few days to see his best man and hittin up Paris for the honeymoon so that’s a good start I think!

here’s the other places I’d love to see(in no particular order):

1.Amsterdam
2.Barcelona
3.Budapest
4.Prague
5.Dubai
6.Istanbul
7.Singapore
8.Dresden
9.Zurich
10.Munich
11.Lisbon

…and all the unknown places in between!

anywhere I left off the list that just can’t be missed?

p.s. I also really want a sweet vintage suitcase to put stickers all over..hmm
